11:01 am
tell us the latest. >> reporter: well, i will tell you this is a hectic looking scene on meridian avenue. much of the commotion that you see is mainly for precautionary measures. if you want to take a look down meridian avenue this is southbound, the street is closed by the fire department as they deal with this situation at the indian health center which provides some medical services. the fire department tells me 10 to 11 people were exposed to a liquid chemical used in dental procedures. many of those people are being examined here near the front entrance by the health center. you can see that some of them involve small children and many are complaining about a cough or some skin irritation, some light headedness. over on the far side of the building you can see that the fire department crews are working with some people. these are the people that have the more severe symptoms or were exposed more directly and they are being called what they called decontaminated. they're saying this is mostly as
11:02 am
a procedure. some of them will be taken to a local hospital just to make sure. you can see some of them are being taken away right now. again a very scary looking scene but the fire department tells me that most of the people have described mainly minor symptoms but again anybody that has anything that looks like it could be severe are being taken to the hospital to be examined. we're also told that there is no second aer exposure to the public because of this and investigators have only now started to determine what caused this exposure to this chemical. we will give you more details as we get them. robert honda, nbc bay area news. >> active scene out there. >> local neighbors perfectly safe. john kasich canceled the scheduled press conference in washington this morning and announced instead he's going to make a statement this afternoon from his hometown of columbus, ohio. >> this comes one day after donald trump handily beat kasich and ted cruz in the indiana primary. cruz dropped out last night, kasich long insisted he would campaign all the way to the july
11:03 am
gop convention. kasich had argued no candidate would win enough delegates to win the nomination outright before the convention. several polls said that kasich is or at least was the only republican candidate capable of beating hillary clinton in the general election. the kasich announcement is scheduled for 2:00 this afternoon. and last night ted cruz suspended his campaign after the loss in indiana. 53% of indiana republican voters picked donald trump, cruz won 37% of the votes. >> and so with a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation we are suspending our campaign. >> now, last night trump extended an olive branch to ted cruz but today cruz refusing to answer whether he will support

11:05 am

11:06 am
>> reporter: santana silva was a 21-year-old resident of fremont, he was attending college, studying to become a paramedic. he came here early mother's day 2013. two groups of strangers began to fight, santana silva intervened. the suspect who was among that group returned with a group, shot santana silva in his car. he was able to drive a short distance, less than a block, before he died on the side of the road. his sister tells us it was in his brother's nature to stick up for people. a detective sergeant with cal berkeley police tells us they have identified persons of interest but no arrests. again, they are looking for a person who witnesses describe per this sketch, additional details about this person his hair was close to his head, possibly tied into a pony a tail, also with a young woman hispanic, asian or filipino with black hair and a ponytail.

11:08 am
mainly cloudy and cooler and storms will be possible for the day tomorrow with some of those storms containing some small hail and lightning, something we will be watching for especially over the east bay and north bay hills, and the rain ends on saturday with a warmer sunday. so all of that coming up in the microclimate forecast. in just an hour and a half or so a group led by the lieutenant governor will launch what it's calling a historic campaign to legalize recreational marijuana by a california voteaaaaƧ this novem >> stephanie chuang is live at the commonwealth club where this campaign kicks off at 12:30. you spoke with both sides on this issue. >> reporter: yeah, and they're standing pretty far apart as you would imagine. good morning. the momentum does seem to be on the side of the adult use of marijuana act, this group says it represents 30 to 40 different groups celebrating here at the commonwealth club in about an hour, hour and a half. ahead of submitting 600,000
11:09 am
signatures that it has gathered and well on the way to this legalization measure on the november ballot this year. that is far more than the 365,000 signatures needed and if voters do approve this measure each adult 21 and older could carry and use up to one ounce of marijuana, grow up to six plants and there would be a 15% tax on retail sales of marijuana. opponents include groups like citizens against legalizing marijuana. we spoke with the founder who is in sacramento this morning by phone, she says the worry is this will increase marijuana usage among kids, carla lowe citing a join study published march in the clinical psychological science journal that followed kids from birth to age 38 finding regular marijuana smokers ended up in a lower social class and their parents with lower paying jobs and more debt and cash flow issues. california also one of 23 states where medical marijuana use is
11:10 am
legal. quote, we haven't got much hope as a country. >> medical marijuana has already given us recreational use of marijuana. the whole thing is a joke. i don't even know why they spent all the money to put this on the ballot. >> the coalition is bigger than ever before. every public poll has shown that a majority of californians no matter where you live, what party you belong to, what your background or ethnic makeup you believe that legalization is a better solution than prohibition. >> one specific argument for legalization is the money states can make. i checked with the department of revenue in colorado where recreational marijuana use is and the state raised more than $70 million in 2014, 2015. already this fiscal year through february that figure is almost $112 million. though the feds consider marijuana a schedule 1 drug the
11:11 am
tide is turning state by state. there are 16 states that may have some type of pot legalization measure on the ballot this year. a spokesman for this group here, the adult use of marijuana says this will be the only one marijuana measure on california's ballot and says the group has raised and spent $3 million in the last four months and is going strong with also a lot of sort of power in the people here, including not just lieutenant governor newsom but which just saw willie brown walk in as well. pretty confident group in there today. live in san francisco, stephanie chuang, nbc bay area news. more details now, oakland may soon be the most pot friendly city in the united states. earlier this morning the oakland city council unanimously approved sweeping medical marijuana expansion and added stipulations to combat racial inequality when it comes to the war on drugs. half of all new medical marijuana businesses -- licenses i should say will be given to
11:12 am
stores in parts of oakland that have higher marijuana arrests. the council also voted to add eight medical marijuana dispensary permits each year and other possibly -- possibly dozens of other spinoff businesses. last year the eight dispensaries operating in the city generated roughly $4 million in taxes. >> the dark side of drugs now, prince may have been on the verge of meeting with a bay area doctor to discuss a drug a addiction that may have killed him. the minnesota star tribune reports the music legend was set to a meet with a bay area doctor to help him treat his addiction to painkillers but died the day before the death. our joanie hernandez is following this story, she will have more tonight at 5:00 and 6:00. home field advantage not for the san francisco 49ers who are at odds with their landlord. up next at 11:00 what could be their next play. apparently there is a way to make minivans cool, we'll show

11:16 am
obama administration says it wants to understand the pros and cons of ai as it makes our life easier, but takes some jobs. and a tip of the hat to the "wall street journal" this morning by investigated sales of ping-pong tables in silicon valley. a reporter talked to silicon valley stores that sell tables and discovered ping-pong table sales to tech companies have fallen 50% from last year, the idea being when you open a tech office the first thing you buy is a ping-pong table. if they've fallen fewer tech offices are being opened. >> that doesn't mean that the ones that are already open aren't doing well. >> i'm sure they are and they don't replace the ping-pong tables. >> no, we haven't. we have one in our diner. google's parent company alphabet has signed a deal with auto maker fiat chrysler to make self-driving minivans. kari, we could reach back and do so much stuff. alphabet and fiat chris letter will make 100 self-driving

pacifica hybrids. they will be prototype minivans for google to use as test vehicles. that deal allows fiat chrysler to jump start its understanding of the technology that goes into self-driving vehicles and allows google to double its testing fleet. there are no plans to sell those self-driving vehicles to the public. rats on that one. >> back here at home -- >> back here at home a fremont company which admitted to underpaying foreign workers will be paying out a six-figure settlement. the company is called bit micro networks, the department of labor accused it of bringing software engineers to the u.s. from the philippines and underpaying them by providing wages in philippine currency. bit micro has agreed to pay out $170,000 including $80,000 in unpaid wages and overtime for 18 workers. the city of santa clara might be the 49ers newest opponent. the team announced it is taking legal action. the 9ers want the city to slash
11:18 am
their rent at levi stadium. the 49ers have been paying the city of santa clara $24.5 million in rent per year, the 9ers are proposing a new rent of 19 million soointd a year. the team claims that better than expected stadium revenue allows them under the agreement with the stadium authority to renegotiate their rent, but so far neither side is backing down so the 9ers are sending this case to arbitration. no comment yet from the city of santa clara, but a former high ranging 49ers executive is speaking out to nbc bay area. this former team exec who wished to remain anonymous tells us, quote, the 49ers are technical correct in invoking a rental reduction but the way they're doing it is penny wise and pound foolish. the york family is swimming in profits. forbes magazine ranks the 49ers as the fifth most valuable nfl franchise worth $2.7 billion. speaking of money, silicon valley gives in a big way, time
11:19 am
is up, almost $8 million were raised. >> here is the total, $7,853,781. silicon valley gives is a 24-hour on line fundraising event, it benefits local nonprofit organizations in santa clara, san mateo and san francisco counties. although it technically ended at midnight if you go to the website you can still give back. >> they will continue to take your money. >> right. >> even though the race is over. meteorologist kari hall is here. we were talking about that google self driving minivan, you can really reach back and get a bingy for somebody if that was driving itself. >> i don't think that is going to happen anytime soon. if you are out there driving you want to make sure the windshield wipers are working because we will have some rain in the forecast. if we don't see it today we will see it within the next couple days, very hit or miss as a slow moving system moving across the bay area. a look at the golden gate bridge, you see the cloudy skies overhead, we will continue to see those clouds with us and a
11:20 am
look now at healdsburg from our weather underground camera, you see the clouds that are also there where we may have measured a little bit of spotty showers but any rain we've seen so far has been over the north bay and some mist and drizzle in san francisco. our temperatures are in the lower 60s, they will continue to climb here as we go into the next several hours. calistoga checking in at 63 degrees, napa 66 and benicia at 65 degrees. the future cast doesn't show a whole lot for today but once again hit or miss spotty light showers that will be possible and some breaks in the clouds, too, so you may even get a little sunshine. later on tonight we start to see some rain developing around the santa cruz mountains, not looking at a lot of coverage there, either. starting out early tomorrow we will still have the chance of some showers, but it really gets going during the afternoon with a potential of spotty thunderstorms that could produce small hail along with lightning and some brief heavy downpours. we see the same thing on friday
11:21 am
as well. a look at all the microclimates, expect a high of 70 degrees in gilroy, 64 degrees san mateo and the outer sunset at 59 degrees, upper 60s in some spots while we have some lower 60s right along the coast. as the seven-day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen you will have a couple days of rain. if you're going out to the a's game today make sure you have a little bit of rain gear just in case we see one of those brief passing showers moving through, otherwise cloudy and temperatures holding steady in the 60s. this area of low pressure is responsible for our unsettled weather, it takes its time moving off to the east. so in the meantime we will have a chance of rain not only today but tomorrow, friday and saturday until it gets far enough east to allow this high pressure to dry out the atmosphere and give us warmer temperatures for the end of the weekend, but once again for the next few days it stays unsettled until that scoots off to the
11:22 am
east. rainfall totals maybe a quarter of an inch, some spots a tenth of an inch around the south bay, maybe a little higher for the north bay looking closer to .4 of an inch. this weekend scattered showers in the forecast, once again, but off and on rain and then sunday will be the only day we don't have to worry about rain at all as our temperatures come up a few degrees we are looking at 74 degrees in the north bay and east bay a high of 68 degrees. i will have another look at the microclimate forecast a little later. easing traffic congestion especially through the peninsula. but first happening now we are tweeting updates on that major expansion of the takata air bag recall. within the last half hour federal authorities added an additional 35 to 40 million air bags in the u.s. to that recall. what that means for your vehicle on our website as well. and a los angeles artist who painted a portrait of donald

11:27 am
accommodate that. >> reporter: this contractor is working on a plan to reconfigure the on and off ramps at the 101 wood side road interchange and expand woodside road below the freeway. >> the interchange will provide wider off ramps so that that traffic can stack on the ramps and get off the freeway. >> reporter: the project comes with a $140 million price tag and so far only $15 million has been set aside to pay for it. while the experts figure out how to cover the cost drivers are hoping for an easier commute. >> if they could add another lane that would be great, that would help. >> so currently the city is asking for public comment on this plan and if it's approved and the money comes in then construction would go inn in four years. asiana airlines will pay san francisco $3 million for crashing one of its planes at sfo. the money will cover damage and deal costs stemming from the

antioch, sunol at 62 and also 62 in dublin. still cloudy in the north bay with 60 degree temperatures. the future cast shows we could have some breaks in the clouds, a little bit more sun as we go through the day and then by 10:00 tonight we may see a little bit of that rain rolling into santa cruz, maybe into the mountains, but much of the main will be hit or miss. don't expect widespread rain or for it to rain all day, i want to keep you prepared in case it does drop and that could happen at any time. at 3:00 tomorrow afternoon we could start to see showers and possibly thunderstorms developing, but it looks like a lot of the energy for the storms will be just to the east of us, maybe over the hilltops and then moving over to the valley. that's where we could see some of the stronger storms developing between tomorrow and friday. as we break it down for oakland, we will have a mix of sun and clouds today, temperatures rising into the mid 60s during that evening commute we will be right at 65 degrees and the low
11:48 am
tonight in the mid 50s. over the next three days it will continue to cool with more rain in the forecast tomorrow as well as friday, highs reaching into the mid 60s, 65 degrees in the peninsula and san francisco only up to 59 degrees on friday with gusty winds, also a chance of rain in the north bay, east bay and the tri-valley as we go from the 70s today into the low 60s by friday. we will have cloudy skies and a cooler trend over the next couple days as this front once again slowly drops in. it won't be until the end of the weekend when it's far enough east to really take out those rain chances in the forecast and the spotty hit or miss showers will be hard to get a timing or a placement well ahead of that. so just something we will be watching on the radar and you will want to make sure you keep checking in on nbcbayarea.com to get live views of the radar and then by sunday high pressure moves in, our temperatures will be clearing out, warming up and a rainfall total that may reach a quarter of an inch but not

as we can and we will certainly keep you updated as soon as we can. all right. now to political news and bernie sanders his chances might be slim, but he is still attacking clinton's voting record. >> did she support free trade without exception? nbc bay area sam brock has that in today's reality check. >> the very mention of free trade has jolted reaction this campaign season. supporters say that trade boosts the u.s. economy, but opponents like donald trump and bernie sanders counter that it's killing american jobs. sanders has used free trade as ammunition against hillary clinton, launching this claim leading up to the indiana primary. >> secretary clinton as you know has supported virtually every one of these disastrous trade agreements and that is an area of strong disagreement that the voters of indiana and america will have to consider. >> is clinton actually tried and true on free trade?
11:53 am
we looked at the senate voting records and found the former new york senator largely supported free trade while in office. of the nine free trade agreements that came across her desk clinton voted yes on six, no on one and abstained from o two. that doesn't include 1/2 at that, the north american free trade agreement, hillary clinton didn't vote on that, but she was first lady when it was passed into law by her husband, former president bill clinton. hillary was an outspoken supporter of the agreement and she wrote in her memoire living history, quote, creating a free trade zone in north america, the largest free trade zone in the world with expand u.s. exports, create jobs and ensure that our economy was reaping the benefits not the burdens of globalization. the reality is she backed off this position in recent years criticizing 1/2 at that for not delivering on its promise. for reality check i'm sam brock. >> we will be right back.
